good morning. into thin air. the mystery of malaysia air flight 370 deepens as dozens of ships and planes launch a new search overnight. now three days since it vanished, still no sign of that plane. this morning, officials admit they are facing an unprecedented aviation mystery. breaking his silence, the father of the sandy hook gunman adam lanza speaks out for the first time expressing grief and anger, even saying he wishes his son was never born. this morning, his candid comments. distraught. the testimony that caused oscar pistorius to become violently ill in court today. we're there live. and whose fault was it? the sky diver involved in this
terrifying collision shares his side of that story. >> i definitely thought i wasn't going to make it. >> and casts blame directly on the pilot. but the pilot's fighting back today, monday, march 10th, 2014. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> and good morning, welcome to "today" on a monday morning. >> and what a mystery we have on our hands in malaysia. that flight that seemed to disappear into thin air. it's today's top story. of course, new developments in the search for malaysia airlines flight 370. more than two days after it vanished with more than 200 people onboard. we've got two reports this morning. beginning with nbc's keir simmons. he's in kuala lumpur where the plane took off. keir, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning,
savannah. i'm at the airport where the plane took off. relatives are waiting for news in the hotel behind me of loved ones who have simply vanished. their aircraft disappeared. the latest news is that sightings, possible sightings of debris and even a life raft have turned out not to be connected. but they are closely studying an oil slick seen off the coast of vietnam to see if that can offer any help as to what happened. it is tense. journalists every few hours are ushered into a room in a building behind me to be told by officials, again, they consider it still a mystery. meanwhile, off the coast, the coalition of nations, vessels and aircraft from around the world, including from the seventh fleet are searching for clues, they simply cannot find. savannah. >> keir simmons on the ground in kuala lumpur for us. thank you. >> and search teams scour the ocean for signs of that wreckage, troubling questions do remain. nbc's tom costello has been following the story around the clock since it broke, tom, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. investigators in both the u.s. and asia are quite simply
baffled. still no emergency transmitter signal, no sign of wreckage in this heavily traveled body of water. it now appears that fuel slick may not have been associated with this downed plane at all. the malaysian military says its radar tapes show the plane may have made a turn as if it were starting to turn back. >> in the waters south of vietnam, a massive international armada searching for the remains of flight 370. but so far, only false or unconfirmed sightings of debris. >> we have not found anything that appears to be objects from the aircraft let alone the aircraft. >> after zeroing in on a fuel sheen spotted over the weekend, the search has expanded and intensified with still no confirmed sign of the plane that disappeared from radar. >> this is a very large search area. >> we caught up with commander william marks aboard the "uss blueridge." >> you have to take into account wind and current and sea state.
and as each hour passes, that area grows bigger. so right now, it is a very large search area, i estimate could be easily hundreds of square miles. >> the loved ones for the 239 people onboard continue to wait. among the passengers, phillip wood, an ibm executive from texas. he was home just last week. >> had a good meal together. and it was just a good quality time, you know. so i'll always keep that in my heart and memory, you know, as kind of a good-bye dinner. >> flight 370 was flying at 35,000 feet and roughly 500 miles per hour when the malaysia military says it seemed to turn back before then disappearing from radar. if it suddenly broke up in flight, the debris could be spread over a massive area. but what could've happened. the possibilities include a calamitous mechanical malfunction, a structural failure, even a bomb. >> something occurred that required their immediate
attention. and they were unable because of task priorities to need to talk to air traffic. >> the u.s. government is helping to review the names and surveillance camera images of every passenger who boarded after investigators learned two of the passengers onboard were using stolen passports. they'd each booked one-way flights to europe through beijing. the question, were they criminals, terrorists, or simply trying to get past immigration? >> the ntsb is also assisting the malaysians in this investigation. malaysian authorities stress that so far there is no evidence of terrorism. but the fact this plane lost contact so abruptly at a cruising altitude is a cause for concern. u.s. officials, however, say they have seen nothing so far to suggest terrorism. matt, back to you. >> tom costello on this, thanks very much. we have greg feith, a former investigator with the ntsb. greg, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> you are trained to ask the right questions here. so let's go through those questions.
what could've happened that was so catastrophic, so fast on board that plane at 35,000 feet that the pilots had no chance to call for help? >> the logical answer to that, matt, is that they had some sort of control event that took place with the airplane. something that was startling to them, unexpected and required them both pilots and their full attention. so you could have an explosive decompression of the cabin, which at 35,000 feet, you've got about 5 to 8 seconds of useful consciousness because of the lack of oxygen. so you're going to have to deal with that. or you could have another structural failure that compromised the controllability of the airplane. >> given what you know about these kinds of aircraft, is it likely to you that type of a catastrophic event was caused by a structural breakup of the plane? or the explosion of something onboard that plane? >> as an investigator, you always want to look at history,
if you will. and when we look at twa 800 where we had a fuel tank explosion that compromised the structure or we had an egypt air 990 which was basically a controllability thing, then we look at panam 103 which was a bomb. you really have to look at the fact this was probably an external or an intentional type act more so than a real controllability issue with the airplane only because the crew had really no time to make any kind of distress call. >> so you're saying at this stage of the investigation based on your experience, you would lean in the direction of a terrorist act? >> i would look at least the fact this flight crew -- the airplane right now, they've been looking on the water for the last three days with no debris. we've seen, again, from history with air france 447. we've seen it with twa 800 where both airplanes have gone into the water. there has been a large wreckage
of debris field, if you will, on the water surface. it was very obvious. this airplane, the 35,000 feet and 500 miles an hour, if it did steer off course, if it went west, it could be over land. if it went and reversed course like the radar data indicates, it could be down near thailand and places like that. only because if the crew is incapacitated, the airplane is still flying. payne stewart, with the pilots being passed out. you remember flew well over 400 miles. >> all right. greg feith. greg, thank you very much for your perspective. i appreciate it. he brings up twa flight 800. unfortunately, i was in a helicopter as the sun came up the morning after that plane went down in the atlantic ocean off long island. and there are a lot of things on a plane that float. and there were -- there were pieces of that debris everywhere. >> still flaming debris. >> that's what's so mysterious about this. without a trace. >> nothing. >> nothing. >> i know. >> meantime, we have natalie here with developments on what's going on in ukraine. >> that's right.
and russia has increased its military presence in the crimean peninsula. this as ukraine's acting prime minister prepares to travel here to washington, d.c. to meet with president obama. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell has the latest. andrea, good morning. >> good morning, natalie. that white house visit for the leader of the new pro-western government, arseniy yatsenyuk, intended to boost his legitimacy in the eyes of the world in advance of crimea's vote to break away from ukraine scheduled for next weekend. he's coming here largely because he cannot get talks with moscow. moscow is refusing to deal with the new leaders. and clashes on sunday shows how tense the crisis is. a pro-ukraine rally in kiev contrasted in crimea with violence when russian supporters attacked pro-ukraine demonstrators in sevastopol. vladimir putin has made it clear he's not budging. sunday, he spoke to germany's angela merkel and britian's prime minister david cameron telling them both the upcoming vote in crimea is perfectly legal and constitutional. the hope is that merkel can try to mediate this growing conflict.
but so far, president obama has certainly not been able to. he's spoken to putin twice for 2 1/2 hours total and gotten nowhere. >> andrea mitchell in washington. thank you, andrea. researchers have found a blood test that could predict the chance a person will develop alzheimer's disease. the new study out of georgetown university identifying ten blood fats that signal when brain cells are starting to degenerate. they compared blood test results from 40 people diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment to 40 control subjects and found the test was able to correctly identify those with memory problems 90% of the time. researchers say larger studies are needed. former nsa whistleblower edward snowden will make his first live appearance today at the south by southwest interactive festival in austin, texas. he will be interviewed by video conference by the lead technologist for the aclu. audience members will also have a chance to ask questions of snowden. the focus of snowden's appearance will be on ways the technology community can protect
against mass surveillance. and some sad news this morning from the world of cars and sports. the ford motor company announced that william clay ford sr. has died. the 88-year-old was the last surviving grandson of the company founder henry ford. the company says he was instrumental in setting the design direction for the automaker's vehicles. ford was also the owner of the nfl's detroit lions. and we have dramatic new video to show you this morning. take a look, from a ski area in michigan. where a 10-year-old boy was left hanging from a chair lift more than 30 feet off the ground. a chair lift manager and a co-worker heard what was going on and rushed up the mountain and climbed the chair lift tower. the manager was able to pull the boy to safety. still no word, though, on how that boy got into that position to begin with. fortunately, it ends well. >> how long was he hanging there? >> i don't know. >> too much. >> too long. >> too long. >> natalie, thank you. is this the week that spring
comes? >> next week? >> a little bit. >> you're not going to love wednesday. >> that's right. it starts off great, but then we take a bit of a dip. this would become coast-to-coast storms that our friends at the weather channel would be calling vulcan. a big mix of rain, snow, ice and wind pushing to the west, to the east i should say. we're talking about anywhere from 3 to 6 inches of snow. by tuesday, this thing continues making its way east with a mess from denver all the way to milwaukee with, again, an icy mix for most of this. the snow not quite so bad. but as it makes its way into the eastern half of the country, much colder air gets drawn down. so we're looking for heavy showers and thunderstorms, down through the south. heavier snow from illinois all the way into western new york, up to 9 inches or more. and then, thursday, here's where it really gets interesting, off
the coast, a possible nor'easter developing, right now about 3 to 6 inches of snow. but some areas, some of the models putting it as high as 18 inches of snow when it's all said and done. we're going to continue to track this. still early, but, again, we want to give you the information you need to make planning as you move forward into the week. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. 7:13 on a monday morning. good morning. i'm meteorologist christina loren. we do have rain on the radar but we're starting to dry out now.
santa rosa south through san francisco, and we're seeing clearing all the way south of san bruno at this point with heavy downpours through hayward, fremont and all of this activity still moving toward san jose. we're mostly dry at this point. we continue through the morning hours count on slick conditions, this is going to clear out by afternoon. then we have a major warm-up headed our way a. return of the 80s as of friday. coming up in the next 30 it's insane. >> all right. >> thank you so much. we've got new developments this morning in the controversy over a massive recall by general motors. a leading government agency is now facing questions over why it declined to investigate consumer complaints sooner. nbc's peter alexander has that story from the white house this morning. peter, good morning. >> savannah, good morning to you. just days ago, federal safety regulators demanded that gm explain why it took ten years to
issue a recall on cars with ignition problems. now, there are new reports that are questioning whether that same federal agency was aware of the problems years ago and didn't do more to get them fixed. >> at least 13 people have died over the last decade in accidents involving gm cars that were only recalled last month, including teenagers natasha weigel and amy rademaker whose chevy cobalt slammed into a tree in 2006 after the car they were riding in allegedly turned off suddenly. >> come to the point where anybody had to die in order for that car to get fixed. >> former national highway transportation safety administrator joan claybrook now is a safety advocate says nhtsa should've forced gm to fix the problem back then. a new york times analysis found more than 260 complaints to nhtsa over the last 11 years about gm cars with ignition problems. >> federal regulators a decade ago could have thoroughly investigated this. they didn't do it, they asked general motors for a little information, not much. >> following gm's recall, federal investigators are demanding answers from the
automaker about why it took so long to order a recall. gm's new ceo has launched an independent investigation and told employees, we will hold ourselves accountable and improve our processes so our customers do not experience this again. nhtsa told nbc news it took steps to review the accidents at the time, including three special crash investigations, which did not contain sufficient evidence of a possible safety defect trend that would warrant the agency opening a formal investigation. >> the recall effects six different models, including the chevy cobalt, saturn ion and pontiac solstice. most of which were manufactured between 2003 and 2007. here's the important part, if you own one of those cars, nhtsa is urging you to follow gm's recommendation to use only the ignition key, nothing else on the key ring if or when you're driving it and to bring it in, of course, as soon as you can for repairs. savannah, back to you. >> peter alexander at the white house. thank you very much. we turn now to the conflict in syria which enters its fourth
year this week. and the advocacy children is painting a very dire picture of that war's impact. a public health system that's collapsed leaving more than 4 million children in need of assistance. nbc news is focusing on that issue this week. in a special series "forgotten," syria's children of serious war. dr. nancy snyderman is on the syrian border. nancy, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. i'm in the hospital which is about three miles from the syrian border. in fact, you can see the mountains that separate the two countries from this hospital room. this is a small hospital. it only has 34 beds. but it has 27 incubators, which tells you about the humanitarian crisis here. behind me finally getting some sleep is this woman who gave birth to a little girl yesterday. and this room is very stereotypical for this hospital. clean, but small.
moms from aleppo and grandmothers from aleppo are here with their granddaughters who are giving birth. and it goes to the heart of the crisis. and that is that syria has lost 60% of its hospitals and with refugees still drifting over the mountains. in fact, there are women i met in this hospital this morning who just arrived. babies being born just in this hospital are to the tune of 10 to 15 a day, which raises the question, what happens when those babies go home because they're going to some kind of refugee camp with international support or not. and the second you and i say good-bye today, she is due for a c-section. in fact, there are nurses hovering outside the door here waiting for her to leave. so i think with that, matt, i will say good-bye to you and we will see you tomorrow with an update on the forgotten children of syria and just the future they have to face. >> all right, nancy, thank you very much. we wish her the best, by the way. and you can find more on this story this week on "today" and "nbc nightly news."
and nancy will have live web casts on nbcnews.com, as well. and now we move to some new details this morning on a frightening collision between a small plane and a sky diver in florida. the chilling scene was captured in this series of dramatic photos. and both men involved are now telling their sides of the story. here's nbc's gabe gutierrez. >> this morning, against all odds, the two men at the center of these incredible images are alive and now blaming each other. a sky diver about to land when just feet from the ground, a small plane tears right through his parachute. at the south lakeland airport near tampa. >> i definitely thought i wasn't going to make it. >> the veteran sky diver 49-year-old john frost who goes by steve is limping and nursing several bruises. he thinks the pilot is at fault. >> our pilot had seen him and contacted him directly to ensure that he knew that we were going to be parachuting in the area.
>> the experienced pilot 87-year-old sharon trembly is out of the hospital and telling his side. his wife tells nbc news, he was very alert as he is when he flies. he was paying attention to what was going on and knew jumpers were there. but the jumpers were in the wrong place. frost strongly disagrees. >> and when you fly into an area with parachutists all over, you have that high potential of killing somebody. >> federal authorities are now investigating the collision, captured by the photographer, tim telford. >> i stared through the lens, is this really happening? i couldn't believe it. >> ironically, the collision happened on national parachuting safety day. >> i will keep sky diving. it's one of the safest sports you can do. >> reporter: for "today," gabe gutierrez, nbc news, atlanta. >> i've seen those photos now a hundred times, i can't believe neither of those guys was more seriously injured. >> let's move over to carson. what's everyone talking about online this morning? >> well, good morning, everybody.

♪ >> 7:30 now on this monday morning. it's the 10th of march, 2014. not spring quite yet, but there's a pretty shot from the top of the rock here in new york city. looking in what direction, matt? >> i didn't even see it. >> oh. >> i missed it. put it back up, and i'll get it, i promise you. and it's looking south. one world trade center in the background. >> oh -- >> statue of liberty is back in the far back corner. let us take a look at what's making headlines. dozens of planes and ships searching formal asia 370 to no avail. authorities in malaysia are questioning two travel agents
who sold tickets to two passengers using stolen passports. several mudslides in washington state triggered. floodwaters forced officials to shut down the zoo in billings, montana, but officials there are hoping to reopen today. if you have been driving a lot lately, you know this. the price of gas keeps going up. the national average has jumped 22 cents in the past month alone. it now stands at $3.49 a gallon. >> spring break. what a shock. >> meanwhile, the murder trial of oscar pistorius caused the olympic sprinter to become violently ill in the courtroom. we'll have a live report from the courthouse with jeff rossen. tomorrow on "today" renowned journalist miltz o'brien will be here for his first morning interview since a freak accident led doctors to have to amputate his left arm. it's an amazing story. >> incredible story. he is incredibly brave. we look forward to hearing from him. meantime, it has been nearly 15 months since the tragic school shooting in newtown, connecticut, and the gunman's father is now speaking publicly
for the very first time in the latest issue of the new yorker. in a moment we'll talk exclusively to the author of that article, but, first, here's nbc's stephanie gosk. >> reporter: there may never be a complete explanation of what drove adam lanza to kill himself, his mother, and 26 students and teachers at sandy hook elementary school, but an article in this week's "new yorker magazine" probably gets as close as anything ever will. it is the first time lanza's father, a vice president at general electric, has ever spoken to the media about the shooting. it's not like i ever go an hour when it doesn't cross my mind. peter lanza tells writer andrew solomon. he describes his son's unraveling and the pain he now struggles with. how much do i beat up on myself about the fact that he's my son? a lot. as a young boy, lanza says adam was definitely different, but still a normal, weird little kid. as he grew older, the problems grew more visible. every day life became almost
impossible. the social awkwardness, the uncomfortable anxiety, the awkward walk, reduced eye contact, you could see the changes occurring. after their divorce nancy lanz yashgs adam's mother, took on the bulk of his care eventually isolating him from the world and his father. peter lanza says he last saw his son two years before the shooting. e-mails from his ex-wife told him not to visit. now more than a year since the killing at sandy hook, lanza wishes his son adam had never been born. that's not a natural thing when you are thinking about your kid, but god, there's no question. for "today" stephanie gosk, nbc news, new york. >> andrew solomon is with us now exclusively. he sat down with peter lanza six times for that "new yorker" article. thank you for being here. >> glad to be here. >> when i read that paragraph when he says he wishes adam lanza had never been born, it took my breath away. what is his state of mind? how would you describe this man?
he must be haunted. >> he is haunted. he wishes he could go back in time and fix what went wrong. is he a kind, decent man, and is he horrified his own child could have caused this destruction. >> why speak out now? this is somebody who has maintained his privacy and his silence until now? >> he said he had been contacted by so many victims families and he said he finally thought his story was an important part of the puzzle and that he had a moral obligation to tell it, that it may help the families or it may help prevent another newtown. >> when something like this happens, inevitably the scrutiny goes to the parents? what did they do? what did they not do? did they miss signs? did the article shed any light on what was wrong with adam and what may have caused him to take this unspeakable act? >> adam had what was then called asbergers syndrome and would be autism speck trim disorder. the autism made him very weird and because they had a diagnosis, it didn't appear to them that anything else was wrong. >> i want to be clear here.
no one is suggesting that autism caused him to be violent, but peter seems to believe that perhaps it masked a different diagnosis that should have been noted, perhaps schizophrenia he says. >> whenever adam was being strange or peculiar, he thought it was just his diagnosis, and he didn't look past it. adam saw a huge number of psychologists and psychiatrists, and none of them detected hints of violence. >> what about the fact that peter lanza was essentially estranged for the last two years of his life. bh he looks at that now, does he feel he should have tried harder to reach his son? >> he said he wishes he had tried harder because he said anything i did differently might have changed the outcome, and the outcome couldn't have been worse or more evil, but at the time i didn't see it. >> we learned also that nancy lanza, adam's mother, in fact, wasn't exactly up front with peter about the decline of adam, about how bad things had gotten. what can you tell us about that? >> nancy was always trying to give adam a good day, and she
didn't think enough about giving him a good life. she dealt with the crisis as they came along, and she wasn't open. she was trying to make everyone think everything was okay as her son got worse and worse. >> does peter blame his ex-wife? >> he very specifically doesn't blame her. he said i was trying hard. she was trying far harder. she did her best. >> a lot of people have looked at her and wondered why did she allow all those weapons to be in the house when she knew her son had mental illness. did peter know about that, and what does he make of that decision? >> you know, nancy had grown up a live free or die new hampshire gal, and she had an idea that guns were part of everyday life. i don't think guns should be a part of everyday life, but they had no sense that adam was dangerous. they thought he was peculiar, but not that he would hurt anyone. he says he was the safest, most cautious, rule follower that i had ever met. >> he met with a couple the
newtown families. what did he say about those? >> he said one of the families had said to him that they were trod forgive adam. he said a family that lost their son, their only son, he said if my trading places with them could ease their pain, i would do it in a heart beat. >> that's fascinating because this is a family that said they could forgive adam, but that's something that peter said he is not ready to do. >> he is not. he said as the trailer indicated that he really felt that he wished adam had never been born, and he said he struggled with coming to that, but what happened was so horrific he could only wish it away. >> well, andrew solomon, it's an extraordinary interview. i really recommend people take a look at it. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> we should mention it's in this week's "new yorker magazine." we'll take a turn now and get a check of the weather from al. >> savannah, thanks so much. as we can see right now, a little bit of activity pushing its way through chicago. this ahead of what we expect to be a fairly decent storm as the week wears on. 50, mild, and breezy today for a high. st. louis, 72. omaha, up to 72.
memphis, 69. atlanta, nine degrees above normal at 72 degrees. as we move into tuesday, temperatures warm up even more. oklahoma city, near 80. same in atlanta. d.c., 71. then, boom, look at this. here comes the cold air. just as the storm makes its way kroou across chicago. only a high of 25. drops 20 degrees below normal. atlanta, two degrees below normal, and here's where the problem develops as the jet stream dips to the south. that storm system will be coming in right into that cold air into the northeast and the great lakes, and that makes the cold air available for a big st 7:38. happy monday morning to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. this is your radar and yes, painting a different picture now than a half hour ago. showers are thinning out. we have slick conditions. the sun is starting to break through in the north bay, we're slated to hit about 69 degrees today. we're going to keep showers in the forecast for the first part

and audio feed. >> reporter: oscar pistorius spent the weekend at his uncle's lavish compound guarded by security. >> how do you think it's going? >> reporter: he doesn't say anything to reporters, but in court this morning, he was crying openly and shaking, listening to graphic testimony about reeva steenkamp's final moments. also today, the security guard at oscar's home took the stand. he spoke with oscar just after the gun shots. as reeva was dying on his bathroom floor. that guard spoke through a translator. >> translator: my lady, i called mr. pistorius. and mr. pistorius told me that everything is fine. but i realized that mr. pistorius is crying. >> reporter: today, oscar's lawyer tried to explain that away. >> mr. pistorius will tell the court he could not speak. he was, indeed, only crying.
>> reporter: there's sad drama unfolding outside the courtroom, too. reeva's parents suing oscar for wrongful death. before the shooting, he made millions in endorsement deals from nike to oakley. >> behind the scenes, reeva steenkamp's family and oscar pistorius' family are in negotiation for settlement. >> how much do they want? >> they're looking at between 200,000 and 600,000 u.s. dollars. >> reporter: reeva's parents said they didn't want to sue oscar but had no choice. their financial situation is dire. they live here along this dirt road 600 miles from petoria. that's their modest home right over there. reeva supported them. she paid their electric bill, she paid for their food. in fact, things got so bad, their cable tv service was about to get shut off. and on the day she died, reeva told her mom, i'll send money for the cable bill tomorrow. >> all the photographs, this is my favorite one. >> reporter: reeva's parents barry and june struggle every day, visibly emotional in this exclusive interview shot for a future documentary. >> she will never have children, never have a wedding, never have
anything because of him. she had a promising future and now it's gone. and he's got to take responsibility for that. >> reporter: it is still so raw, they keep a shrine to reeva. photos from her younger years to the smart, beautiful woman she became. a model with a law degree. her law books, still on the bookshelf. >> she must have suffered so much. besides being in pain, she must have been terrified. why couldn't i be protecting her? and that's something out of our hands. >> reporter: reeva's father says when the trial is over, he wants to speak to oscar face-to-face, one-on-one privately. he doesn't know what he'd say, but he wants that chance. neither of the parents are in court today for the upsetting detail about the condition of her body when she died, matt. >> jeff rossen in petoria this morning, thank you very much. coming up, will it work? the new ad campaign that's using humor to address a very serious problem.

jason bateman is pulling double duty in his new movie, a dark comedy about a 40-year-old who worms his way into a kids' spelling bee to settle an old score. and not only is bateman the star, it also marks his directorial debut. what does it say about your character? despicable, mean, almost a bully, i would say? >> listen, he is a gentleman who has had his feelings hurt and he's not as smart as you or me or a viewing public here. he's not well-equipped to sort of mend his wound, lick his wounds. so he's doing something kind of petulant and impulsive here and crashing a spelling bee to kind of exact some revenge. >> he crashes the spelling bee, he's surrounded by little kids, that does not mean he uses soft and caring words. i mean, he's tough on these kids. he tricks them? >> well, yeah, but it's because he's also kind of a kid. i mean, hopefully, people will see there's a deeper agenda here
at play and he's -- the analogy i make is when a 5-year-old boy wants to tell a 6-year-old or 5-year-old girl that he likes her, he pulls her hair. you know, and that could be -- that's kind of what this guy is. that's how he bonds with these kids. >> now, this is your first time directing. how did you find the lead actor? difficult to direct. >> just a dream. this guy, justin i think his first name is. no, jason. every take he did, it was like he was reading my mind. just spot on. no, it was -- i didn't want to play the lead role. >> i was going to say, i actually heard you didn't want to cast yourself. >> right. i went after a couple of much more talented gentlemen and they told me to lose their number. so i said i'll play it. because i thought it might lighten my work load if i didn't have to direct the lead actor. and it let me concentrate on other things. >> what was it like to direct? is this something you wanted to do for a long time? >> yeah, a very, very long time.
it was a dream, you know. it's very complicated, involved process to create a fake world for an audience. and i just wanted the privilege of overseeing that process. it's a lot of people that are very skilled that you need to pull that off. and it was a pleasure to work with all of them. >> as i mentioned, there are a lot of little kids in this movie. you, of course, grew up in this business. you once were a child actor. does that help you kind of relate to them. >> yeah. one of my first big jobs was on "little house on the prairie." look at that. it's like they're reading my mind. look at that. it's a beautiful piece. isn't it? >> and that hair. >> look how full that piece is. so michael landon was the writer, director, actor on that and took care of us little kids. and i found myself recalling a lot of those memories about how i was set to be. if i was bored, he would make it fun. so the kid who plays in this movie, he and i got along fast
and well. >> this, of course, as you mentioned was the backdrop of the spelling bee. were you a good speller? are you a good speller? >> i'm -- i'm -- i'm better than my wife. that's all that counts. i was not a great speller. i was in one spelling bee when i was a little kid. i lost early to the word answer. dropped that tricky "w." >> what about "surprise"? >> z-u-r -- am i right so far? >> yeah. >> no. the spelling bee aspect. we basically keep that in the background. it's basically a venue where all of this good stuff happens, you know. >> i love spelling, though, and you have a doozy of a word in this. i want to see if you could spell it for us. flosinosinpilifilication, i believe. >> okay. go ahead and start spelling it. you have to memorize that word?
>> well, we'd write them on cue cards around the camera. but multiple places so i could get three letters there and then and another card down, three more letters and, you know, so. >> well, i won't ask you to spell it. just define it. >> i don't -- i'm just a dumb actor. >> dumb actor and director. >> well, sure. but still dumb. >> and you're directing again over the movie with nicole kidman, right? >> yeah, starting in may, really excited. >> well, the movie is "bad words," very funny. you feel guilty for laughing because you're so bad. >> always good to see you. >> nice to see you.

from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist, and tamron hall. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. welcome "today" on a monday morning, march 10th, 2014. there's a great crowd outside. packed. >> spring break. >> that's right. big crowd this time of year. next couple of days. >> falls off a cliff, high in the 20s. >> i'm willie geist along with al roker, natalie morales and tamron hall. we're going to get to our big power ball winning. >> somebody's retiring. >> we'd probably lead with it if someone was retiring. and we'll explain who won, as well. but our big story this morning, this thing is
mystifying, it really is. biggest mysteries are calling it an aviation history unfolding right now. the search for missing malaysia airlines flight 370 continues this morning in the water south of vietnam. so far, only been false, unconfirmed sightings of debris. the flight disappeared early saturday about two hours after departure, there were 239 people onboard. it was at a cruising altitude, 35,000 feet, going about 500 miles an hour when the malaysian military said it seemed to turn back before disappearing from the radar. this has led to a lot of speculation about what should've happened, what might have happened. we should say this is all speculation right now. possibilities of mechanical malfunction, structural failure, terrorism is still an open possibility. adding to the mystery, investigators learned two of the passengers onboard were using stolen passports. u.s. officials say, they, though, have seen nothing so far, anyway, to suggest terrorism. there are three americans onboard. one of them identified phillip wood a 50-year-old ibm employee
from texas who is living. also told two american children onboard ages 4 and 2. guys, this is crazy. day three now of the search and now a trace of the plane. we had an oil slick we heard about that they were looking into. today they confirmed that oil slick had nothing to do with -- >> nothing to do with it. >> somebody a plane, a surveillance plane thought they saw a life raft. they got nothing at this point. >> disappeared in thin air. and there's so many different theorys as to what could've happened. it brings back, sadly you think about some of the tragedies that have happened in the past. i mean, lockerbie, you know, the planes just kind of, you know, just disappear and turns out later you do see a debris field. here, you're not seeing any evidence of that yet. >> people have -- i'm sorry, tamron, i was going to say that recent air france flight. >> it took two years to recover the aircraft itself. but the thing i think i heard most this weekend from people i've been running into.
of course, you know, you want to know what caused it. but that this plane, a 777 can disappear with all the technology on the plane and in the sky with satellites and that maybe not -- you may not be able to pinpoint the exact spot, but a radius, they've not even been able to do that. so, of course, the investigation as to what happened is key, but how this happened vanished is incredible. >> and the black box only has battery power for about 30 days. >> is that right? >> if they don't find that within the period of time, the pinging may never been found. >> i heard one expert say if you lose your buick, they'll find it for you in about 20 minutes. but a 777 falls off the face of the earth, it's incredible. >> strange that not a single bit of communication from the pilot goes to tell you that there obviously was something catastrophic they didn't have time to react. >> amazing. >> all right. another big story we're all talking about. and this is just so heartbreaking to read. for the first time we're hearing from the father of newtown
shooter adam lanza, spoken to the "new yorker" magazine. and a couple of things he revealed in this interview. conducted six different interviews with andrew soloman. and he says in this interview he wishes his son had never been born. it's not a natural thing when you're thinking about your kids. but god, there's no question, he says. he told the writer andrew soloman, it's not like i ever go an hour when it doesn't cross my mind. of course, adam lanza killed himself, his mother and the 26 students, the 20 students, 6 teachers at sandy hook elementary school in december of 2012. and peter lanza asked how much do i beat up on myself about the fact that he is my son? a lot. he says adam was just different as a young boy, but still a normal, weird little kid. they knew he had problems when he was growing up, they became more visible as he became older. and the last time he said he saw adam was two years before the shooting.
his ex-wife, apparently had told him not to visit. >> and he started thinking had i started visiting. >> and speaking out because it's been 15 months and many people have wondered and tried to reach out to him. and he said it was because the families of the children who were killed and the teachers wanted that answer to help connect the dots. and i'm happy that he at least gave them that. that's a continuous part of their grief, as well and knowing what was this child's life like that made him do this? >> can you imagine his parents having to come to terms with the idea that your child had never been born? can you imagine having to accept that? >> it's a horrible, horrible thing to say, but to know in this case, it's true. >> you look through history and there are examples like that, unfortunately. >> think how much this is now -- every day, every hour, he thinks about this. this is horrible. >> well, on an amazing note, if you saw these pictures over the
weekend. sky diver and pilot both recovering after mid-air collision near tampa, florida, on saturday. investigators say the plane was doing touch and goes. landing, taking off, landing, taking off when a wing clipped the parachute strings. the pilot, 87 years old, sky diver john frost falls to the ground. neither one seriously injured. federal investigators now looking to this new question surfacing as to who is at fault here. pilot's wife telling nbc news he's very alert as he is when he flies. paying attention to what was going on. he knew there were jumpers in the area. in fact, earlier we had an interview with the jumper, with the parachuters, and he said, john frost said his pilot was in contact with this guy and said we are in the area. we are jumping. he knew about it. so it's one of those things. this could've ended so tragically. but thankfully, by some miracle, it didn't. both walked away. >> and the plane is doing a nose dive straight into the ground
and he gets -- lifted and tossed to the ground. it's incredible. >> and another one blaming. even the wife of the pilot allegedly saying that, you know, was he up to snuff on that day? remains to be seen. >> look at that sequence of events. how could neither of them be seriously injured? it's a miracle. >> the parachute is so close to landing, all was going as planned perfectly getting ready to put his feed down on the ground when that happened. >> was not either one -- >> and that series of photos was remarkab remarkable. you can't get over that. >> well, in life they tell us to try a little tenderness, or was that elvis? >> same thing. >> i live my life by what elvis used to say. but this moment out of minnesota is so hartwarming, it's absolutely beautiful. there's a high school wrestling match over the weekend, and
malik stewart faced off against mitchell. after the match, malik received a standing ovation. why? well, malik knew that mitchell's dad was suffering from cancer. so he walked over to the sidelines and shook mitchell's father's hand, gave him a hug and told him to keep fighting. and malik's own father died of a heart attack when he was younger, and he said, i got a little teary eyed because i lost the match and i knew the hard times he was going through. i just did it straight from my heart. >> that's malik there. >> yeah, that is malik there and the father who is battling cancer. you can see. it is so sweet. and we said a moment of sportsmanship. no, this is a moment of humanity. this is a good kid to think about someone else's dad in the middle of all of that and not get caught up in the sport. >> well, having known he knew what it was like -- >> absolutely. we both lost parents and you know. that's a moment you can hug
someone and say, i understand what you're going through. i'm here. and sometimes that's all you have to say. >> and for a teenager who probably just lost the match of his life, stop and say, wait a minute. >> stop and be in the moment. be in the moment. >> well done, malik. well done. so we mentioned the power ball. >> yes. >> at the top of the show. >> we won, guys. >> how do you know? >> we won the power ball. >> we talk about a woman who won the power ball. we did the same on friday. some fortune cookies, sold out some numbers, entered power ball. one of our tickets had three correct numbers. we are now -- >> how much, come on? >> $7 richer. >> wow! >> divided by what? >> and we've done some forensic work and we found out that it was actually natalie's fortune cookie based on the message she recalled from the back. >> remember, i said, why not treat yourself to a good time instead of waiting for someone else to do it. >> and you said it like dark
natalie. >> i worry about you guys. you're so trusting. who went and bought the ticket? who do we see? how do we know? i'm suspicious. >> but they got us a winning ticket. >> $7? >> sounds like dark natalie's got a friend. >> dark tamron. that's a double meaning. >> really? really? okay. let's move along here. and we are looking at another storm that's right now impacting the pacific northwest. this thing is going to go coast-to-coast, already bringing a real mess out west. we're looking at rain and snow, brutal p winds, icy conditions. not a lot of snow out of this thing, but a decent amount of rain where they've already seen some heavy rain already. now, by the time we get into tuesday. icy conditions from wisconsin all the way back into denver. we expect not a lot of snow out of this thing, maybe 3 to 6 inches, but as we make our way east, here's where it gets very interesting. we're going to see this thing really start to ramp up. heavy rain along the coast,
central and mid-atlantic coast into florida. icy conditions and snow back to the west. look at this, by wednesday, we're talking about 6 to 9 inches of snow, thursday, it continues into the northeast. this thing deepens. we could be looking at a classic nor'easter. snowfall amounts could really start to ramp up before it's all over, we could be expecting upwards of 18 inches of snow, interior sections of new england. we're going to keep an eye on 9:11 now. still mostly cloudy here in beautiful downtown san jose. you can see our roadways are still pretty slick. travel cautiously out there. meanwhile, lots of sunshine to show you all the way from the east bay through san francisco and the north bay right now. we are nice and sunny, headed towards comfortable conditions this afternoon. expecting the 70s to return, especially in the south bay. we'll see plenty of upper 60s to low 70s here. 65 degrees in san francisco for today. hope you have a fantastic

and started talking about what this woman means to him. and her character. and i -- every woman in the world and every man at some point in life should have somebody that loves them like that. and just so incredibly proud to be their partner. it was moving. >> that sounds -- >> every husband there went home -- i got my homework this weekend. it was lovely. and then sorry -- >> was that your favorite thing? >> that was my favorite thing. >> this was your favorite thing last week. >> no, it wasn't. >> you talked about entemann's. i said i liked them. now it is my favorite. it is not the way hugh jackman looks at his wife. these will make you feel good inside. five bucks at your local grocery store. >> so saturday night, three big birthdays we celebrate in march. my son cody will be 24. i can't believe it. he's huge. i can't believe i gave birth. anyway, his god parents, eve and
stanley moore, we went to a great restaurant out in the greenwich area called balbela. so regis and joy came. every time we get together, when they say hilarity ensues, they don't mean it. when i say hilarity ensues, hilarity ensues. we picked right where we left off. regis was in rare form. >> what was he doing? >> he was screaming, going to other tables, just yelling and doing what he does. >> i wish you could reveal what you can't. >> i can't. i will reveal next week, but we were having fun -- >> there is a point. >> we didn't know there was a point, which makes you also want to tune in next week. >> a big deal. a big deal. >> but we had a ball. i just want you to know that regis is ready to come back to television with me. but he wants to take over the 9:00 hour. >> he does? >> i was supposed to talk to everybody here. he's ready. >> he's ready to go. >> he's ready to go. >> make it happen. >> the ball is in your court. >> it is in your hands. daylight saving time, you know. everyone was supposed to spring forward and the beauty about

this. this was her a-ha moment. she jumped into action, she downloaded that app, my fitness pal, she started tracking all the foods she ate, she gave herself a caloric range of 1200 to 1500 calories, committed to three days a week of exercise, and she's about to walk out, half her size. started at 265. she's 130-ish now. she's unbelievable. >> step on out, brit. >> oh, my god! >> no. >> whose picture did you use? >> are you serious? >> hi. >> you look awesome. >> thank you. thank you. >> one of the cool things i wanted to show you is we talk a lot about weight loss success and variety of foods. she's done just the opposite. i think that repeating what you eat is helpful for a lot of people because it is safe, it is comfortable, you know what you're getting and it removes
tempting options. >> guilt. >> everyone must be freaking out? >> right. >> she has a green smoothie in the morning. for lunch, a turkey wrap with lettuce, apples and carrots and makes this delicious ratatouille chicken concoction with brown rice. >> okay. angela is 41 years old, from danvers, massachusetts. at heaviest, 385 pounds in this picture. i think a lot of guys will relate to this. he played football in high school. so he was big and strapping. he was overweight, but kind of works. >> depending what position you're playing, it works. >> exactly. when he graduated, he no longer played football, he continued to eat -- >> the way he did as a player. >> right. and he gained an exorbitant amount of weight. he's a paramedic. he was on the ambulance, he got an emergency call, there was a patient, an obese man was stuck in a basement apartment. him and his three partners on the ambulance had to get this man up on to a stretcher and up
a flight of stairs into the ambulance. and andrew could hardly do it. he was gasping, he was weak and he realized at that moment that not only was his own health at risk, so was the patients' health as well. >> here is andrew's before picture. >> all right, andrew. come join us. >> and, by the way, he's single. >> single? >> single. >> are you -- well -- >> come on over. my goodness. >> he did it through jenny craig because it was easy for him, meals were delivered, he worked with the consultant and they taught him how to do everything. >> we want to say congrats to the joy fit members. great job. coming up, you have to have a sense of humor to work for her demanding boss. >> the very funny jenni pulos on what gets her "flipping out". >> oer the day we rescued riley was a truly amazing day. he was a matted mess in a small cage.
